Plot Summary:

Taking its title from the state motto of New Hampshire, LIVE FREE OR DIE is a deadpan comedy about a clueless, aspiring criminal named John “Rugged” Rudgate (Aaron Stanford), who spends his days forging rebate coupons and selling speakers out the back of his van. One day, Rugged runs into an old acquaintance, the dim-witted Jeff Lagrand (Paul Schneider), who recently returned home to help his cynical sister (Zooey Deschanel) run the storage facility that they inherited from their father. When Rugged tries to force his way into the Lagrand family business, things go terribly wrong -- and the situation gets even more complicated when an emotionally unstable cop (Michael Rapaport) begins investigating.
